The Lead Service Line Replacement and Notification Act mandates that all public water suppliers in Illinois create a comprehensive water service line material inventory for all properties supplied with water in the community. To meet this mandate, we need your help collecting information on the material of the water service line in your house. 

Water service lines are the pipes along your property that run from the city’s water main to the water meter inside your home. Common water service line materials found in homes include copper, lead, galvanized steel, and plastic. Congress banned the use of lead service line pipes in 1986 to protect public health. However, if your house was built before 1986, your water service line may be made out of lead. Please note that plumbing products sold between 1986 and 2014 were still allowed to contain up to 8% of lead content by weight. Therefore, there is still potential for your plumbing to have lead if your house was constructed between 1986 and 2014.
